Adam’s Story: Burning Fire

Above the streams
All he touches turns to ashes
Away from sight, held not by tens
Aggravating like the sun
Arrogantly he burns.

Up he grows even taller than trees
Underneath a meat, taste he brings
Uniquely he mimics, mirage of the suns
Unashamed of ashes, scared by the wets
Unveiling an aspect of pain, blaze it burns.
